Around 25 inches long, this Barekaan Wala Kachera has been tailored and produced in Amritsar and are made from high quality soft medium weight poly- cotton. Easy drying, durable and burr (fluff) free material ensure that they will last longer than most. This traditional Kachera is made to be worn to around the knee. In order to find out what size you need, measure from where you would normally tie your kachera (from waist/hips etc) to your knee and then add on 2-3 inches. A rough guideline to sizing can be seen below.
Now, some of you may be thinking, what is a Barekaan Wala Kachera? So let us explain… Barekaan Wala Kacherey are also sometimes also known as a Rave Kachera due to the fact that the cloth is turned diagonally (i.e. at 45 degrees to the direction it has been woven) and sewn together to form a tube which is then further shaped. Hence the word Rave (diagonal). This method uses more fabric so this Kachera measures around 54″ wide.
The name Barekaan Wala Kachera itself comes from the fact that when you bend your legs or go to sit down crossed legged, the Kachera because the way it is cut and sewn together, gently closes to your thighs as if it has put the brakes on hence giving the wearer a dignified appearance and keeps modesty at all times.
This also has an added benefit, as due to the narrow closing design of legs of the Kachera they have a lower tendency to ride up the leg which makes them nice and comfortable under trousers/ jeans too! Vah! Maharaj thought of everything hunna 🙂
– Everybody is different so please take the above as rough guidelines only.
– Kacheras are hand made so may vary slightly from sizes indicated.
– Kacheras may have small marks on them which have occurred intentionally or unintentionally during the measuring, hand cutting, sewing and packaging process however these can be washed off. It is not recommended you wear before washing.
